Description

Dyson is growing. Fast. More products. New categories. More visual communications. We are a creative technology company with a global and iconic identity. Our mission is simple: We solve

problems others ignore with exciting new technologies which defy convention.

 

Communicating our products’ superiority with brevity and presenting ourselves in the right way is

essential to selling, protecting identity, and building our hard earned Reputation. And every contact with our public contributes to the Dyson Experience, so each must reflect our

values and philosophy. Perfectly.

Market Overview

Dyson HQ, is tucked away in the Wiltshire countryside, our secluded location helps us to protect our ideas and stay independent-minded. Yet nearby are the fashionable cities of Bristol and Bath (where a young James Dyson invented cyclone technology). 

The growing campus is the heartbeat of Dyson. Benefitting from an onsite Gym, sports pitch, multiple cafes and a nature walk. Over 2,000 people, including James himself, spend their days strategizing, inventing technology and telling the Dyson story to the world.

Function Overview

The ‘Integrated Campaign Team’ is one of three core teams in the ‘Dyson Experience Group’. Its central role is to take product and/or market specific visual communications strategies from the Product Visual Communications Team and create fully integrated campaigns that populate all consumer journey touch points, on paper, on screen, in stores and at events.

Accountabilities

world. Producing world class solutions, for world-wide executions.

populating Dyson’s indirect retail landscape such as:

 

A) Temporary card-based communications mechanics.

B) Permanent fixtures (inc. ticketing).

All product categories. All markets.

 

 

You will be leading a team that exists to understand shopper habits and needs in order to create clear UX goals and solutions for activation in Dyson’s indirect retail landscape. Setting a continuous improvement programme. Delivering solutions that integrate with the overall Dyson Experience at brand level and Campaigns at product level.

Skills

You must be able to analyse test observations and data and turn them into insights; turn insights in creative strategies; and turn creative strategies into brilliant context driven communication hierarchies. You must have an eye for detail, and obsess over accuracy. 

You must quickly become a Dyson visual identity expert and guardian, with a complete understanding of our identity guidelines, to ensure that all Dyson retail marcomms not only clearly communicate the right messages, but present the messages in a ‘Dyson’ way.

You will have (or quickly develop) an understanding of Dyson, its engineering ethos and visual identity and have good judgement as to what makes good Dyson communication and what doesn’t.

You will have a degree or equivalent in Graphic Design, and ideally 2–3 years industry experience. A strong technical understanding of typography and grid systems is essential. As is an understanding of information hierarchy to deliver complex messages through clear, and balanced composition.

You must also have a keen eye for creating and adapting engaging visual assets (photography, film, animation) and a belief in the practice of ‘doing more with less’.

You will be an expert in InDesign, have good knowledge of Photoshop and Illustrator, and ideally be able use 3D rendering software for visualisation purposes. You must also understand design production – with solid experience of artworking and pre-press.
